About the schedules

The Ready For Service dates set out in the attached Disconnection Schedule (and other dates published by Telstra in relation to the disconnection of copper services) are determined based on dates notified to Telstra by nbn co under the Definitive Agreements and are subject to change by nbn co at any time. The Forecast Ready For Service dates published in this Disconnection Schedule are therefore made on a ‘best efforts’ basis only and provide an indicative view only of the rollout timing and Disconnection Schedule.

Telstra does not warrant or represent that the dates set out in the Disconnection Schedule are current or free from errors or omission.

Given this, the Disconnection Dates and other dates (particularly where these appear other than in the format dd/mm/yyyy, or which are listed as an “Expected” date) on the page are only indicative and should not be relied on as final timelines.

For up-to-date information in relation to the timing of the nbn rollout, interested parties should contact nbn co directly.

As these schedules will be updated periodically, you should check this page regularly.
